The TL.37 was an Italian vehicle of WWII. It was Model SPA, called TLA (Trattore Leggero per artiglieria). The tractor was designed to accommodate six people, draw artillery pieces of 75mm and 100mm at a speed of 40 km/h on roads and tow trailers carrying ammunition with a capacity of 100 shells and cross slopes of 60%. In 1938, the TLA gained favor of the authorities over it's competitor from Breda and was renamed TL.37. In October of that year, an order was placed for 250 tractors with 24 units sent to Libya to test and evaluate the vehicles. Although the TL.37 was not fast and had complex mechanics, it was regarded as the best artillery tractor employed in North Africa even when pitted against captured Allied artillery tractors.
